Follow Fail – How to not be followed back on twitter

Atherton Bartelby at Mashable lists the 10 reasons someone you follow on twitter might not follow you back. Here’s the summary:

  1. No avatar
  2. No location, website or bio listed
  3. Your “website” is a myspace page
  4. You’re following over 1,000 users, have 20 followers, and no updates
  5. Your profile features any variation of “Internet expert”
  6. You’re always pushing your product
  7. You auto DM a salespitch when I follow you
  8. You say anything like “I need more followers” in your recent updates
  9. You constantly argue with everyone/anyone for any/no reason
  10. You don’t engage the followers you already have

He also used carbonated and pregnant in the article in unstandard contexts. Nice.
